Margaret Clare Hutchinson

Margaret Clare Hutchinson, born in 1930 in the Rotherham area, is my second cousin, once removed and daughter of Amy Yates Smith and Wilfred James Hutchinson.


HUTCHINSON. – On Thursday, 28th December, 1933, at 88, Browning Road, Amy Yates, the beloved wife of Wilfred James Hutchinson, in her 24th years.

The newspaper article below describes Margaret’s marriage to George Stanley Birch in Saint Thomas’s Church, Kimberworth. Although the article states that Margaret is the daughter of ‘Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Hutchinson’, her biological mother died when she was three years of age.

Margaret’s mother, uncle and grandfather all died at relatively young ages.
